and to the OP, the Cove STD fits your needs pretty well..still accepts a front derailleur, full seat tube length. seems to be one of the last bikes like that

Such a sick bike. I always dream of getting a single crown fork, a light but strong wheelset, a front der - and one rig for some serious old man riding. Too bad the hardtail is so much fun.

meh, still riding this as my only mtb. Who needs to pedal up anyway?


(yes I know the hoses need sorting, just haven't got round to it yet)

I've actually done a 28 mile xc ride on it and survived though, it just wasn't enjoyable doing around 1000m of climbing on haha

My GF built up a 2015 Enduro EVO. She's only had one ride on it so far (we're still mostly snowed in here on the east coast) but the bike looks great and should make an awesome "free ride bike" for her that she can also do some more pedaly rides on as well as hit the DH tracks on.

My new do-it-all bike … hope to ride the North Shore, Squamish, and Whistler and do about 25 days in the Whistler bikepark. Knolly Chilcotin, 180mm Marzocchi 66s (Chili Frame is 180 approved), Cane Creek DB rear shock, Formula The Ones brakes (stolen from my kid), 1X10 drivetrain. A little heavy on the climbs, but good rear wheel traction, very stable and good going downhill.

Cove STD looks nice to, but for Brasil it's a little bit hard to buy. Im not listening a lot of news from Cove bikes, someone know what's going on?

I'm planing to buy a used Bottlerocket Frame build it with cane creek DB, Rock Shox Lyrik, Sram xo 1x10, with narrow wide chainring, as my second bike, I have a Transition Tr450 2012.

I love my bottlerocket. It's done everything I need it to do and looks great doing it. I run a narrow-wide ring, but a standard 9 speed with some custom gearing. I'm still running a wet fork and shock as the bike sees Whistler laps as often as it sees the trails outside of the park. Running some light rims and beefy rubber, it's a great bike. A little heavy, but nothing my legs can't push.

That said, I'd love to try it with some air suspension. Now you got me thinking…..
